Jockey to use Outlast technology to make Smart Thermals

Outlast Technologies, leader in heat management, announces the continuation of its partnership with Jockey International Inc. Jockey has expanded its Outlast technology offering to now include Jockey Smart Thermals. The new Jockey Smart Thermals follow the successful product launch of the Jockey staycool collection of men's and women's undergarments, introduced to the market in the spring of 2011.

A collaboration between the two companies has resulted in end products that have the quality and style consumers have come to expect from Jockey products with the added benefit and comfort of Outlast technology.

“Jockey's loyal customer base embraced the launch of the Jockey staycool line with open arms and the product garnered new customer interest,” said Heather Manuel, Outlast North America sales and marketing director. “The expanded product line with Jockey Smart Thermals showcases the versatility of Outlast technology to increase the value-add of a product, regardless of the season.”

Outlast technology uses phase change materials (PCMs) that absorb, store and release excess heat to maintain optimal external body temperature. The technology in the Jockey viscose fabric creates a microclimate of comfort between the skin and the garment to help reduce overheating that ultimately reduces perspiration which can lead to chills. Additional features of the Jockey Smart Thermals include a body-hugging fit for layering and a plush back waistband for added comfort.

Outlast Technologies, Inc., a privately held U.S. corporation, is the worldwide leader in phase change materials and applications. Outlast technology is the heat management technology originally developed for NASA that enables any textile to absorb, store and release heat.

Jockey International Inc, is a privately held company, founded in 1876. Today, Jockey is a leading manufacturer and marketer of apparel products sold in more than 120 countries around the world. With headquarters in Kenosha, Wisconsin, Jockey is committed to quality, comfort and innovation, and is dedicated to extraordinary customer service.
